About the ‘Easy Grooves’ Class:

This class is suitable for beginners and as a warm up for more experienced players. In this session we explore the basic sounds on the djembe drum starting with the ‘bass’ (middle of the drum), the ‘tone’ (side of the drum) and finally ‘slap’. After some initial work on technique, we explore djembe rhythms from Guinea Conakry, Senegal and Mali in West Africa.

There is a common and healthy mix of abilities in the Easy Grooves Class. We plan the material for Easy Grooves so  there is something for everyone’s level - easy, accessible parts for complete beginners and more challenging parts for experienced players.

About the ‘Advanced Beats’ Class: 

This class explores traditional solos for djembe and the dunduns and assumes you already have a few years’ experience of regular djembe playing. If you are new to the class and would like to discuss whether this session is suitable for you, please feel free to contact Steve Rivers to discuss.
